Super Itchy Again!

I've been super itchy for about a week now, and my humans think they've found the culprit: salmon oil.

Woo may ask, how can a husky, of all dog breeds, be allergic to salmon oil?

I was eating salmon oil around this time last year when I got super itchy and had to get my head shaved TWICE.  It could be due to the environment, and we are definitely not ruling that out, but my itchiness was significantly decreased during the time I was not eating salmon oil.  I have been on sardine-anchovy oil since October/November of last year, and we just switched to salmon oil a little more than a week ago.  I became super duper itchy all of a sudden, and my humans say it is a good chance that I'm allergic.  

Well, I'm sad that I can't eat any more yummy salmon oil, but I'd rather be not itchy!

Trip to the V-E-T


My human sister and brother took me to the V-E-T last Friday!  They woke me up super duper early at 10:15 AM.  I thought we were going somewhere fun, like a play date or to the doggy beach, but nnnnoooo.  My V-E-T is Dr. Pema Mallu at Veterinary Holistic Care in Bethesda, MD.  She and her assistants are super nice, but I woo'ed the WHOLE time because I was still not happy being there!

First, they put me on the scale.  I now weigh 46.6 pounds, which is down from the 49.8 lbs I weighed last year, but it's too hot these days for me to eat much.  Then the humans took me into a room where I tried to hide from Dr. Pema under my human's chair, but they found me.  The humans pulled me out and Dr. Pema kept TOUCHING me!  And she used these special toys to look in my ears and eyes, but she didn't let me play with them.  She said I have a little bit of something called cat-a-rackts, whatever that is.  Maybe it's a new type of cat?  But why would it be in my eyes?

Then Dr. Pema poked something into my front leg and it was really owwie, but I was a big boy and didn't cry.  It's best not to watch the V-E-T draw the red liquid from woo.  Dr. Pema said it was for a "hart-worm" test and a "Distempter/Parvo" titer.  I don't know what those are, but the humans seemed to think it was important.

We're still waiting for the "hart-worm" and the titer test results, but Dr. Pema said everything else was good.

After we left the evil V-E-T, I did have some tummy troubles, and my human thinks it may have been stress from the visit.  :(

Hope woor weekend was better than mine!

Sad Monday

We are lost for words at the news of Thunder's passing.  I was introduced to the OP Pack blog in 2010, and I am so glad I had the pleasure of getting to know Thunder a little bit through the blog.  During times like this, we ask ourselves, "Why?  Why so suddenly?"  Indeed, the news of Thunder's illness came very quickly, but my bi-peds and I are also thankful that TD had such great family members and vets, so he didn't have to suffer for very long.  I believe that we each have a reason for being on Earth, and that when we have accomplished our goals or fulfilled our reasons for being here, we are called back to that special place named the Rainbow Bridge to wait for our humans and friends.  Although we miss him greatly and still feel that Thunder was taken much too soon, I am happy knowing that he is whole and pain-free again.  He is gone physically, but we know he'll be watching over us every day.  Wear your silver harness proudly, Thunder!  Until we meet again, buddy.

Please leave words of support for Thunder's family here.

Deer Showdown #2

It's been just a little over a year, but when my human and I returned to the same park where we were followed by deer #1, we were confronted by a deer #2!  I'm not very good at telling deer apart, so I don't know if Deer #1 is Deer #2.

This time, we weren't chased, but Deer #2 crossed the trail right in front of us.

Can woo see the deer from this far?

Staring contest with Deer #2.

Continuing staring contest...

Unfortunately, my human did not want to see who won the staring contest (I'm pretty sure I won, though).  Until we meet next time, Deer #2!!

We are very sad to hear that Thunder at the OP Pack isn't feeling so well.  So far, his prognosis isn't very good, but we know that the Power of Paws is stronger than any medicine from the V-E-T.  Please continue praying and crossing woor paws that TD will feel better soon.

A Trip Down the Memory Lane!

Since not much has been happening around here, I have decided to share some pics that I took a year ago, but haven't had the time to upload onto my compwooter until today.  These were taken on one of my human sister's birthday (which is actually one day before mine, on June 12th!).

We were walking at a local park when I spotted something in the bushes.  Upon closer look, it was a young deer!

My sister isn't too fond of deer because they can be pretty scary when they run out into the road at night, and there are LOTS of deer in my area.  So we tried to walk away quickly, but not before we took one more picture.  We were thinking that he would run away first, but he just kept staring at us.  Maybe he thought he was a pup, too?

But as we walked away, we noticed that he was following us...

And following us...

My human got really nervous because the deer kept pawing (??) at the ground, as if he was going to charge at us, so we tried to not make any eye contact with the deer and tried to walk as quickly as possible.

But alas, our attempts at running away kept failing because our legs were so much shorter.  He caught us again!

Here's a picture of me being brave and telling the deer to leave us alone.

But all he did was go ahead of us and kept pawing at the ground, staring right at us!

One more picture of him staring at us from afar.

Unfortunately, we had to pass the deer to get back to the car, so we walked by slowly, keeping an eye on him in case he decided to charge at us.  (Not that I couldn't take him on, of course...but I had to stay and protect my human)

Finally, we passed by him!

Then he started following us again!  Thankfwoolly, he decided that I was too scary and went home.  At the end of the whole ordeal, we saw another wild animal, but this time, it was a harmless little rabbit.  Can woo spot the rabbit in the following picture?

Here's a video of the deer following us.

It was a furry interesting day for sure!  We hope we never have to be followed by a deer again.

I'm 6 years old!


I hope everypuppy is safe from the horrible weather we've been having.  We had a couple tornadoes touch down in Maryland today, but thankfwoolly, my area didn't get any tornadoes, just lots and lots of rain.

Anyway, on to the good stuff!!  Today is my birthday!  I turned 6 years old today.

My humans surprised me by inviting Molly over for a play date!

First we argued over who should get more attention from my brother.

She may have won that round, so we moved on to competing to see who would get more food from my humans at the table.

Molly was using her height to her advantage!  No fair! She's taller than I am!
Molly is to the left and woo can see me on the right side.

 Here's me stalking Molly.

 A great hunter stays still until the prey comes as close as possible.  3...2...1...

 Start going crazy!!

 Molly escaped to the couch!

 My human sister says to ignore her foot in that picture.

 Molly looking very pretty on the couch next to MY brother.

 After taking a break, the humans gave us some buffalo sticks.  Even while eating, I was watching Molly.

After more crazy zoomies around the house and lunch, we decided we should take a nap.  
Unfortunately, Molly had to go home early because of the storm, but we still had lots of fun.  Woo can see how tired I am!

My mom hopes everypuppy will excuse us for the mess in the pictures.  It didn't matter to me and Molly while we were playing so everything was ok.  Ice cream pictures to come tomorrow!

Good night!

Yucky Weather Monday

It's been raining off and on in Maryland again.  So when there was a little break from the rain, I took my human out for a walk like a good pup.  If they don't get walked, they get antsy and tend to cause trouble.  

But it was still really humid after the rain, so we couldn't walk for too long before I got tired.  So I just sat near the road and people-watched.  

This way...

Then that way...

What do woo all like to do on rainy days?  

Friday, June 7, 2013

Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday everyone!!

I hope woo all aren't having yucky weather like I am here in Maryland.  Rain, rain, and more rain!

Too Hot!!

It's not as hot as it was over the weekend, but it's definitely not husky-friendly weather!!  I spent most of my day sleeping at home with the AC on!

What do woo all do on hot days?

It's that time of the year!

My humans brought the dreaded brush out and tortured me for an entire 10 minutes!  Look how much of my beewootiful fur they removed!

I was NOT a happy pup as they kept brushing and brushing me, claiming that it'll make me feel better.  

To be honest, it did feel a little good, but don't tell my humans I said that!  

I did get praised for not running around like usual.  But I complained about it afterwards.  My human took a video of it, but she's having technical difficulties on her phone, so she will have to upload it later.  Silly humans!

I Have A Facebook Account!

Since all my humans are working, they said it's hard to update my blog as often as they want to.  So my human sister created a Facebook account under my name!  She doesn't know how to put the link in here on her iPhone, but if woo look up "Hero Song" on Facebook, woo should be able to find me with the following profile picture.

I hope all of woo will consider following me on my Facebook page!  My humans will try harder to continue my blog for those of woo who don't have a Facebook account.
